Gaelic has just arrived from Hong Kong
and Yokohama. In Korea the king re
cently issued a proclamation urging the
sacrifice of queues, and set the example by

following suit. The minister of education
resigned and retired to his country home

disregarded. Many lesser government of

their locks. The proclamation excited
alarm among the people at large, but at
each of the four gates of the capital con

country people to compel them to submit
to tiie barbers who sire in waiting for their
